Just call her Valeriano-no: Junior Tonimarie Valeriano threw a no-hitter with 12 strikeouts and two walks as Mepham beat Long Beach, 2-0, in a Nassau Conference AA-I softball game Monday.

The junior utilized her drop and screwball throughout the game, coach Mike Muscara said. Alexa Morris had a two-run triple in the fifth inning to lead Mepham.
